This is a regression. Logos 5 used to render Khmer Unicode correctly, but now it fails. I am not sure which version worked (because now I have the newest), but Logos Bible Software 5.2a SR-6 (5.2.1.0155) does not work anymore.
I've attached a screenshot of Logos 5 and the incorrect rendering along with a screen shot of Microsoft Word with the text correctly rendered.

Also here is the plain text: ២៧ ត្រូវ‌ប្រកាស‌ថា សាច់‌ទ្រូង និង‌ភ្លៅ‌ចៀម‌ដែល‌គេ‌យក‌ពី‌ចៀម ប្រើ‌សំរាប់‌ធ្វើ‌ពិធី‌តែងតាំង‌អើរ៉ុន និង‌កូន‌របស់‌គាត់ ហើយ‌ដែល‌គេ‌បាន‌លើក‌ថ្វាយ‌ព្រះអម្ចាស់‌នោះ‌ជា‌សាច់‌ដ៏វិសុទ្ធ។ ២៨ ហេតុ‌នេះ‌ហើយ‌បាន‌ជា‌នៅ‌ពេល‌ដែល‌ជន‌ជាតិ‌អ៊ីស្រាអែល‌ថ្វាយ‌យញ្ញបូជា‌មេត្រីភាព សាច់‌ដែល‌គេ‌ញែក‌ថ្វាយ‌ព្រះអម្ចាស់ នឹង‌បាន‌ទៅ‌ជា‌ចំណែក‌របស់‌អើរ៉ុន និង‌កូន‌របស់‌គាត់។ នេះ‌ជា‌ច្បាប់‌ដែល‌ត្រូវ‌អនុវត្ត‌តាម‌រហូត‌ត‌ទៅ។
The issue with Logos 5 (see the plus marks, they should not be there):

Problem with Khmer Unicode in Logos 5

Problem with Khmer in Logos 5

And in Word 2013:

No problem in Word 2013

No problem in MS Word

It would be great to see Logos 5 support the Khmer language again, especially since it already did and has regressed. Not sure if Logos staff will actually read this, but I thought I would post anyway.

I will create a case for Development to investigate. 

What version of Khmer Unicode are you using right now?

Thank you! Smile

Wonderful - thanks for the quick response!
You can find a standard Khmer Unicode font here: https://www.google.com/fonts#UsePlace:use/Collection:Content/Script:khmer

That font has the latest Unicode specs for the Khmer language.

Let me know if you need any more detail or testing.

Blessings,

Nathan

This should be fixed in 5.2b beta 4. Smile

This is fixed for PC - thank you!

My friend has MAC and it still has issues displaying some Khmer words correctly and both PC and MAC have issues searching Khmer (PC can search, but doesn't find all the results, and MAC returns no results searching in Khmer).

Example: MAC Logos 5 does not display ម៉្លេះ correctly

Thanks!
